Lehigh Valley Visitation Attorney
At my firm, The Law Office of Robert Sharpe, I represent grandparents who wish to obtain custody or visitation rights with their grandchildren. In the past, it has not been easy for grandparents in Pennsylvania to obtain these rights, but with the recent change in the law covering these cases, it has become somewhat easier for grandparents to obtain visitation rights, and in some cases, custody of their grandchildren.

Grandparent Rights' in Pennsylvania
The change in the law has clarified the legal situation of grandparents to some degree, although there is no simple answer in a case involving grandparents' rights. It used to be that the parents had to be separated for at least six months in order for a grandparent to have a chance at obtaining custody or visitation rights. In one recent case however, I was able to obtain custody rights for a grandparent while the parents were still living together.
The outcome of your case will depend on a number of factors. The biggest issue, as it is in all child custody and visitation matters, is what the judge perceives is the "best interest" of the child. In this you are fortunate, because most judges in our area are grandparents themselves.
As your lawyer, I will advocate for you with strength and clarity, making your case and working diligently to achieve your goals.
